A Closer Look at CBC (Cannabichromene)

A Closer Look at CBC (Cannabichromene)

Today we are taking a closer look into one of the minor cannabinoids discussed in our previous blog. CBC (Cannabichromene) is one of the lesser cannabinoids found in some hemp plants (high in CBD) as well as in many other marijuana plants(high in THC). CBC may be one of the lesser cannabinoids when speaking of the quantity found but not when it comes to its benefits.


CBC was discovered in 1966 but until now was not specifically researched. That is partly due to the rising interest in THC over minor cannabinoids, but as CBD has taking the spotlight these past few years, it has opened the door for these amazing minor cannabinoids to get the attention they deserve.

Although the research around CBC is still limited, it is also promising. In the studies conducted they showed CBC to have many strengths especially when combined with CBD or THC.

In one particular study CBC showed strength as an anti-inflammatory, anti-pain and anti-bacterial with mild benefits as an anti-fungal.  The only "problem" was that CBC didn't interact directly with CB1 or CB2 receptors like CBD and THC do but indirectly by working with many other receptors.

As studies continued with CBC and CBD combined as well as CBC and THC combined, the promises became greater. In combination CBC contributes tremendously in the many believed benefits of cannabis both CBD and THC.
